    Rolling Rock is still my favorite mainly for its smoothness and balanced flavor.

    Status whores who try to claim they have taste and culture yet can only apply it to beer?

    I used to drive a shitty old cavalier with a crappy suspension, little dents/scratches, and zero power. Still got me to my location the same as all those losers in their bmws, VWs, and non-bargain basement cars that costed over $3k. Why pay for more?

    Wait? This is still a forum with thousands of threads about high end clothing, food, scotch, movies, music, etc... right? A high end beer thread certainly seems out of place. Going to Bennigan's is pretty much the same as high end restaurants too. I think Kwilkerson can attest to that

    [​IMG] strong ass beer

    When I'm vacationing in Brazil, I'll drink the hell out of Leffe. Basically, it's one of the best beers I can get there for a decent price (German and American imports are usually insanely priced there, not sure why Leffe goes for $2 a bottle). The national beers are great for the beach, but when I want flavor, I need something with more substance.

    I'll drink it on occasion at home too, but normally stick with IPAs.

    I absolutely love Tübingers Red Ale... it is brewed in Southern Chile. I am not sure if it is available overseas also. If you ever head down to South America, you should definitely give it a try.
    Stella Artois is pretty good, too.

    Hmm...I've been recently trying to get myself to enjoy beer more. I wasn't able to stand the taste before, but I think I'm starting to acquire some respect for the variety of tastes that different beers can have. With that said, I've also learned that I REALLY REALLY REALLY dislike the bitterness of hops. I think of the beers I've had, I've particularly enjoyed Hoegaarden, Sam Adams Boston Lager, and Blue Moon. I guess I like wheat beers that are smooth and clean, but I'm open to trying other beers. What beers do you suggest?

    Dude. If you abhor hops drink Belgian Trappist beers -- Chimay Red or Blue. Just. Do. It.
